Natural Motion

I swim through liquid noise
to drown in your voice

weightless buoyancy
overtaking this burden

such a shame
that we're losing our oxygen

Shadows drift in like breeze
the sky's canvas transitions
into mixtures of visions

clouds smeared like charcoal
increasing in number

rolling thunder takes stage
with white lightning spotlights

the world, an audience

the universe moves constantly

never fights its design

the birth of a child

with the conclusion of a galaxy

the end of a journey

no regrets, time to leave

this earth and find another

the movement will never cease

ashes through air

air into lungs

clouds in the sky

blood through the veins

a heart beating




gravitational motion

fall of an empire

rise of a nation

flow of a river

perfect flotation





just a part

of a whole

just reality

just creation

Wow! This is impressive. Your mixture of styles and ideas itself speaks of the theme. The main illustration is compelling and this little quatrain is like dessert:

"fall of an empire

rise of a nation

flow of a river

perfect flotation"

Where are the voting levers??? :-)
